CASAS is a wonderful shelter for cats and provides a comfortable living environment while they await a new home. It is run by very dedicated and compassionate volunteers.

As a volunteer and Board member of CASAS, I can not think of a more positive experience than to be the voice and caregiver to our no-kill shelter residents. We are rewarded by finding good homes for good pets.

The Carrie A Seaman Animal Shelter is an oasis of care and concern in this community. As a volunteer I'm able to witness the truly humanitarian effort that goes into saving homeless cats in our community. No effort is spared to help and make comfotable young and old in this shelter. All of the people involved in this effort are dedicated to the survival and security of the lucky cats who live there.

I believe our shelter makes a huge difference in our community. Not only do we care for the cats at the shelter, we help keep animals in their homes by providing assistance to owners during transitional periods in their lives. Our subsidized spay and neuter program helps control unwanted animals all around the Outer Cape. Of course, it’s the volunteers that make a shelter work. Daily cleaning, socializing cats and kittens, and spending quality time with all of the residents are only part of what our volunteers accomplish. Strong community ties are established and our supporters are loyal. CASAS can and does change lives for the better.

People for Cats was looking for another shelter on the cape to partner with and after a wonderful tour/visit with CASAS we knew we found the right place. Their dedication and love for all the kitties they get in is above and beyond. Like other shelters it's the volunteers who make things run smoothly. Given the extra time and love to each cat is just how it works here. I, as a board member and volunteer for PFC am proud to be associated with CASAS....keep up the good work.

CASAS is my favorite of all non-profits. I am totally impressed by the work done by the all-volunteer staff and I am a regular donor to the shelter. I've already adopted one cat and am currently thinking about another one. CASAS is a fabulous no-kill shelter, where cats can run free and interact with the other cats and the volunteers. CASAS has excellent veterinary services, a spay/neuter program, and dedicated volunteers who make sure that all animals stay healthy and happy. I love visiting the shelter and playing with the kitties. When I adopt a cat, I know that she/he has been spayed/neutered, that it has all the necessary shots, has a chip, is healthy, and has been socialized to other cats. I wish I could provided a forever home for more of them. But I also know that CASAS has a very high adoption rate and that the animals who are not adopted get to remain at the shelter, safe and sound, for the rest of their lives. I can't believe how many volunteers give their time to make this the best shelter in the region. They're amazing!

I love being a part of CASAS. It's a cage free, no-kill shelter where the cats enjoy spacious, sun-filled rooms. They even have access to an outdoor enclosure for fresh air and bird watching. The kittens are well socialized and are used to spending time with other cats so fitting into a new home is easy for them. CASAS helps control unwanted kittens and puppies with their subsidized spay/neuter and trap/neuter/return programs. They are a proven asset to the comminuty by helping to fund a pet food bank and assisting with medical expenses. I am proud to endorse Carrie A. Seaman Animal Shelter and hope to bring this organization the positive exposure they deserve.

Am also a Board member and donor. CASAS is a no-kill, cage free animal shelter located in Provincetown, MA on Cape Cod. We have a very active spay/neuter program as well as housing 40-60 cats at any given time. We are run almost solely by volunteers, and rely on the generosity of our donors to house and feed our cats. We adopt out about 100 kittens and adult cats per year. We have a volunteer vet who takes care of the medical needs of our animals. There is not a great need to find homes for dogs on the Cape, but when that need arises, we foster them out until we can find a home for them. The shelter is a great place to volunteer. We have a wonderful time caring for and socializing our cats and kittens. They are greatly loved, and when they go to their forever homes, we receive much positive feed back about how great the CASAS kitties are.

I am a foster care giver at Carrie A. Seaman Animal Shelter. They offer to pay for food and litter and insist on providing medical care through their volunteer veterinarian. I pay for food and litter but take advantage of the medical care. They are cage-less and everybody gets along, on two levels of the building. There are private rooms for mamas and kittens who need isolation, otherwise it is important to keep things calm. Which they do.

Make it possible to take in more cats.
